Czechoslovakia Union

Czechoslovakia is the most successful team to come from Eastern Europe primarily dependent of its effectiveness of teamwork abilities and the number and level of great legends has been created in a low rate. All players from Czech Republic and Slovakia, after separation of Czechoslovakia in 1993, are also included. Its first ever famous legend is Karel Pesek Kada, the best center-half in Europe during the second half 1920s. Frantisek Planicka as a Czech representative became the best goalkeeper in the World during the second half 1930s. Josef Masopust, the first central midfielder ever to win Ballon’Dor award, was an icon of the golden era of Czechoslovakia in early 1960s. Ivo Viktor phenomenally saves in the 1976 Euro led the nation to win the only champion of major international tournament and became one of very few keepers to finish in top three Ballon’Dor. The era of independence saw Pavel Nedved as one of the best player in Europe during the first half 2000s.

    You have created Teams for the Republic's of the former USSR - Russia, Ukraine, Georgia...
    Maybe you should think also about different teams for Czech Rep. & Slovakia?

    1. I made the eleven players in three groups for Soviet Union as there are many legends enough to make it. Czech Republic has the enough number but Slovakia just had a few remarkable legends just five names in this squad. In the future, if Slovakia had additional legends, I'll create them for sure.

      I understand such position.
      But in my opition, there were 15-20 players of extra-class in Slovakia. That is enough for team of 11 players:

      GK Schrojf (Slovan), Stacho (Spartak Trnava).
      DF Dobiaš (Spartak Trnava), Popluhar, Ondruš, Gögh, Pivarnik (Slovan), Jurkemik, Barmoš (Inter Bratislava).
      MF Kozák, Geleta (Dukla), Kvašňák (Sparta Praha, but born in Košice), Bubernik, Jokl (Slovan), Kuna (Spartak Trnava), Moravčík & Hamšík.
      FW Adamec (Spartak Trnava), Scherer, Petráš (Inter Bratislava), Masný & maybe Dubovský (Slovan).

      In any case, have a nice day!))

    1. Fortunately, I have a Slovakian closed friend. He suggest Kuna is deserved a place. However, I see there is no room for him in all-time squad so I'd make his profile in reserved list.

    1. These names are not accustomed to me. Do you have any detail that they're great enough ? I found few articles and those mention no outstanding profile on them.

  9. Naratorn Hasek, Bilek and Scherer are the dream team of the Czech Republic in a book that speaks of all World Cups which came out in Brazil, you can also add Masny and Moravcik in the squad.

    I think that Rosicky could be even in the first team, or at least in the Major Reserved Group.

    Rosicky have 105 international games and 23 goals. Was the czech footballer of the year three times (2001, 2002 and 2006) and Czech Golden Ball in 2002. Also was named as best offensive midfielder in Bundesliga 2001/2002 (maybe by the kicker magazine) and one most well ranked (top 5) midfielders in Bundesliga during 2 seasons (2001/2002 and 2002/2003). Peak years of Rosicky should have a better consideration.
